Welcome to the Department of Electronics, a department dedicated to world-leading research and teaching in Electronic Engineering. Our research groups play significant roles on the national and international stage, collaborating with major industries and securing funding from research councils. In the latest REF assessment, 87% of our work was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent. With respect to our teaching, in the most recent NSS survey in 2016 we were rated in the top 10 nationally for teaching quality (for the third year running) and in the top 5 for academic support. We offer a wide range of degree programmes specifically designed to educate you to be a world class engineer and maximise your full potential.

Currently tests to detect the presence of infection or disease require a sample of blood from a patient, which is later analysed in a laboratory to detect markers of disease. The presence of particular proteins can give an indication of a health condition and the best course of treatment, but only one type of protein can be identified per sample.
